St. Mary's University School of Law was founded in 1927 in San Antonio, Texas, by the San Antonio Bar Association. Seven years later, the Law School was accepted as part of St. Mary's University, an independent Catholic institution founded in 1852 by four Brothers of the Society of Mary. Known as a "lawyer's law school," St. Mary's seeks to give its students the knowledge and the attributes of mind and character essential to the effective rendition of public service in one of the learned professions. The Law School seeks to impart to its students a clear understanding of the true function and aim of the legal system-the attainment of justice. St. Mary's Law School was approved by the American Bar Association in 1948. It was admitted to membership in the Association of American Law Schools in 1949. Entollment is limited to approximately 700 students.

A Word From The Dean

Virtually every day, someone I meet asks me how things are going at St. Mary's Law School. By now I have developed a standardized response: "I think that everything is going well. Of course, my judgment may not be wholly unbiased." In fact, I do think that things are going well, but I am not unbiased at all. As I look back on my first two years as the Dean of the Law School, I am proud of what we have achieved. We have stepped up our efforts to attract highly-qualified students to St. Mary's, and our Law School now has a stronger and more diverse student body than ever before. We have hired several new professors, all of whom are both talented teachers and promising scholars. And, while maintaining our reputation as "a lawyer's law school," we have established a number of exciting new programs.
Dean Barbara Bader AWave

I am especially proud of our advances in clinical legal education. During the last two years, we have launched four clinics - one each in Juvenile Justice, Immigration Law, Capital Punishment, and Poverty Law. These clinics provide our students with an invaluable opportunity to receive hands-on, carefully supervised training from experienced practitioners. Just as importantly, they introduce our students to the rewards and satisfactions of helping the young, the poor, and the desperate. Finally, they provide a significant service to our community, and to persons in critical need of legal representation. As I view them, they are a win-win-win proposition. I also am proud of our initiatives in international and comparative law. The St. Mary's Institute on World Legal Problems - conducted each summer in Innsbruck, Austria - has become an acknowledged leader among the many foreign programs offered by American law schools. Currently, visiting scholars from Nigeria, Russia, and Mexico are in residence on our home campus, at our Center for International Legal Studies. We recently have established a Centre for Conciliation and Arbitration, which will promote the resolution of both domestic and international disputes through means other than litigation. We have initiated cooperative programs with two law schools in Mexico, and we have sponsored several lectures, conferences, and symposia on international legal problems. As I indicated at the outset, I do not pretend to be an unbiased source of information about St. Mary's Law School. This Annual Report is not wholly unbiased either: After all, members of the faculty and administration wrote it. Still, I invite you to read through it, and to form your own judgment about how things are going at St. Mary's. I also invite you to visit our campus when you can, and to share your thoughts with us.

A Letter from Abroad

St. Mary 's at Innsbruck
by Professor Vincent R. Johnson
By virtually any measure, the 1991 Institute on W orld Legal Problems at Innsbruck was the most successful of the six annual summer programs which the School of Law has conducted in Austria since 1986. The five-week session, highlighted by a twoweek course taught by the Chief Justice of the United States, was attended by 70 students representing approximately 30 American law schools, as well as universities in Germany, Hungary, and Austria. The program of studies included a selection of international and comparative law courses as rich and diverse as those offered by any of the nearly 80 fore ign study programs conducted by American law schools around the globe each summer. The faculty, comprised of professors from St. Mary's and several other A merican and European universities, taugh t courses dealing with International Energy Transactions, European Economic Community (EEC ) Law and Policy, Transnational Environmental Problems, International Human Rights, Law and International T errorism, International Business Transactions, W orld Lega l History, and Comparative T ort Law.

Chief Justice Rehnquist Teaches Course on Supreme Court

A lthough the late Mrs. Rehnquist was precluded by poor health from accompanying her husband to A ustria, the C hief Justice made good on his longstanding promise to teach a course on The Supreme Court in United States History as part of the 199 1 Institute. He was assisted by Associate Dean Dav id Dittfurth, who served as a team-teacher fo r the course, lecturing on topics which provided a conceptual framework for the C hief Justice's treatment of historical subj ects, and engaging with the C hief Justice in classroom colloquies designed to probe issues raised in the course. While many appearances by members of the Supreme Court consist of only a single speech or at most a few classes, the C hief Justice presented eight full lectures during his two weeks in lnnsbruck. His teaching was enthusiastically rece ived by students, and the faculty found the C hief Justice to be an engaging conversationalist, a pleasant dinner companion , an inquisitive tourist, a devotee of fine music, and a keen intellect.

During his stay in Innsbruck, the Chief Justice was the guest of honor at an elegant dinner hosted by the Governor of the Tyrol and at a grand reception attended by the students in the program and distinguished members of the Innsbruck legal community. At a special faculty dinner hosted by Dean Aldave, the C hief Justice was presented with two small gifts: a sweat shirt from the University of Innsbruck and an Innsbruck baseball cap, similar to a cap (from C harleston , S.c.) which the C hief Justice wore while hiking in the mountains with members of the faculty. Upon completion of his teaching in Innsbruck, the C hief Justice traveled to Vienna for a series of visits arranged by St. Mary's, including meetings with the Presidents and Justices of the Austrian Supreme Court and Austrian Constitutional Court, and with the United States Ambassador to Austria. On a number of occasions in Innsbruck and Vienna, and also by subsequent letter, the C hief Justice expressed his deep app reciation for the hospitality extended to him by St. Mary's University. When he was told, prior to his departure to the United States, that St. Mary's would like to tempt him back to Innsbruck sometime in the future , he replied warmly, "That would not be difficult." The Distinguished Lectureship at Innsbruck, held by Professor Laurence Tribe of Harvard Law School in 1990 and by the C hiefjustice in 199 1, will be filled by Associate Justice Antonin Scalia in 1992 and by Associate Justice John Paul Stevens in 1993.
Special Lectures & Field Trips

Dean Edward M. Gaffney of Valparaiso University School of Law in Indiana spoke on the connection between Tudor and Stuart England and provisions in the American bill of rights. Professor Peter Kovacs of Miskolz University in Hungary lectured on human rights in Eastern Europe. Professor Frank Hopfel of the University of Innsbruck discussed the European human rights regime. Dr. C hristoph Brezinka, an Innsbruck gynecologist, spoke on population policy, family planning, and abortion law in Austria. St. Mary's Law School Adjunct Professor Wayne Fagan presented guest lectures on international business. And Professor Andras Sajo, the chief legal advisor to the President of the Hungarian Republic, presented severa l classes on environmental and EEC law. Students and faculty also participated in field trips to the State House of the Tyrol province, to an Innsbruck law office, to a Notary's chambers in Kitzbuehl, and to the provincial court located in Innsbruck. In addition to the Director and Associate Dean Dittfurth, professors from the home campus teaching in Innsbruck in 1991 included Geary Reamey (Assoc iate Director and Co-founder of the program), Michael Ariens, Marsha Huie, and Victoria Mather. A lso on the faculty were Professors Fritz Raber of the U niversity of Innsbruck, Alan Raphael of Loyola University in Chicago, and John Dzienkowski of the University of T exas. Professor Dzienkowski held the title of Katherine A. Ryan Distinguished Visiting Professor. The 1991 program was the second -largest conducted by St. Mary's Univers ity at Innsbruck. It was exceeded in size only by the 1990 program, which was one of the largest foreign programs on international law ever operated anywhere in the world by an American law school.

A number of special lectures helped to enrich the educational experience of students in the 199 1 program.

Crossing Borders

New Offerings in International Law

During the past academic year, St. Mary's School of Law has responded to the growing interest in international business and trade, especially in the Western Hemisphere, by expanding its offerings in international law.

In addition to holding its annual summer Institute on World Legal Problems in Innsbruck, Austria, where students were provided rich and diverse opportunities for studying comparative and international law, the Law School established some exciting new programs and began exploring others for implementation in the 1991-1992 academic year.

Joint Programs With Universities in Mexico

During the fall and spring of 1990-1991, Dean Aldave and the deans of two universities in Mexico began exploring the possibility of creating programs to increase the understanding of legal issues between the United States and Mexico. The result? A joint program has been established with the Universidad de Monterrey for attorneys who represent clients or wish to represent clients doing business across the United States-Mexico border. The two-year program will begin in the summer of 1992, with an initial group of 15 lawyers from the United States and 15 lawyers from Mexico.

In addition, St. Mary's Law School has developed an exchange program with the Universidad Autonoma de Coahuila. In September 1991, 15 students from St. Mary's Law School attended a three-day conference at the Universidad de Coahuila on Legal Aspects of the Free Trade Agreement. One month later, 16 students from Coahuila came to St. Mary's to participate in a conference on U.S. and Mexican law and legal research. St. Mary's students reciprocated the generous hospitality extended to them in Saltillo by hosting a Texas barbeque and night on the town for the Mexican law students.

Centre for Conciliation and Arbitration

In the spring of 1991, St. Mary's University School of Law opened its Centre for Conciliation and Arbitration . The C entre was established to promote and facilitate commercial dispute resolution , both domestic and international, through means other than litigation .
Headed by Adjunct Professor W ayne Fagan , the Centre is instituting educational programs for law students and attorneys, identifying and collecting reference materials on the conciliation and arbitration processes, and developing working relationships with existing national and international arbitration bodies. The Centre is housed in the Sarita Kenedy East Law Library. In the future, it will serve as a site for arbitration hearings.
Visiting Foreign Scholars

During the 1990-1991 academic year, Dr. Margaret Okorodudu-Fubara, Senior Lecturer at O bafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Nigeria, was in residence at St. Mary's Center for International Legal Studies as a Visiting Foreign Scholar. While in residence, Dr. Fubara, a Fulbright Scholar and W orld Bank Fellow, wrote a law-review article on environmental warfare for the St. M ary's Law Journal. Dr. Fubara has extended her stay at St. Mary's into the 199 1-1992 academic year in order to finish a book on environmental law in Africa. She is joined this year by two other Visiting Fore ign Scholars: Lic. Patricia Begne, Professor of Law at the University of Guanajuato in Guanajuato, Mexico; and Larisa Krasavchikova, a docent of civil law at the Juridical Institute in Sverdlovsk (now Ekaterinburg) Russia.

Lectures, Symposia & Special Events

During the 1990-1991 academic year, St. Mary's University Law School hosted a number of lectures, symposia, and special events that attracted significant interest among faculty and students and members of the community. Archibald Cox, Carl M. Loeb Professor of Law at Harvard U niversity School of Law, C hairman of Common Cause, and former W atergate Special Prosecutor and U.S. Solicitor General, discussed developments in civil rights. Philip Chase Bobbitt, Counselor on International Law in the O ffice of the Legal Adviser of the United States Department of State and former Associate Counsel to the Pres ident of the United States, gave a lecture on "The Power T o Make W ar" in the spring of 1991.

In the fall of 199 1, Professor Bobbitt addressed "The Power T o Make Peace," and in the spring of 1992, he will discuss "The Power T o Keep Peace." Professor Bobbitt, author of several books, holds an A. B. in Philosophy from Princeton University, a J.D. from Yale Law School, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Modern History from Oxford University. Nina Totenberg, Legal Correspondent for N ational Public Radio, was the Commencement speaker fo r the class of 199 1. She spoke about the importance of public serv ice in the legal profession, and expressed hope that the graduates would not only "do well" but would also "do good." During the fall of 1990, the Law School hosted a panel discussion on "Rambo" litigation and legal professionalism. The panelists included T exas Supreme Court Justice Eugene Cook; Judge Dan Downey; and Michael E. Tigar, the holder of the Joseph D.

The two-day symposium featured experts from the United Nations and academics with prior U .N. service who addressed a broad range of topics, including human rights, trade, transnational corporations, the environment, statehood, and conflict resolution. In addition, prominent authors in the field of international publications and specialists from the Library of Congress and the United Nations' Dag Hammarskjold Library offered critical insights concerning legal and interdisciplinary research in United Nations documents. In the fall of 1991, the Institute sponsored a threeday symposium on "The United States and Mexico: Law and Legal Research."
Symposium on Legal Aspects of Doing Business with Mexico

In February 1991, with the assistance of a grant from the San Antonio Bar Foundation, the Law School held a two-day conference on "Human Rights in the Americas." Speakers from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America, and South America addressed such issues as "Women's Rights in the Americas," "Refugee and Asylum Policies," "The Inter-American Court: Practice and Procedure," and "Human Rights in the Americas: Emerging Problems." The keynote speaker was The Honorable Thomas Buergenthal, Lobingier Professor of Comparative and International Law at George Washington University and President of the Inter-American Institute of Human Rights. Professor Buergenthal, an internationally renowned expert on human-rights issues, is the author of numerous books and articles concerning human rights, a judge on both the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and the Administrative Tribunal of the Inter-American Development Bank, and a survivor of the Holocaust. His speech, which traced developments in human rights since World War II, brought the conference to a close.
Symposium on United Nations Law and Legal Research

St. Mary's Law Journal sponsored a day long symposium in March 1991 on legal aspects of doing business with Mexico. Well-known practitioners from both sides of the border spoke at the symposium, held at the San Antonio Convention Center.
Topics included the prospective free-trade agreement between the United States and Mexico, the problems and potential benefits of maquiladoras, the role of arbitration in settling international commercial disputes, and the past and future of "Salinas troika. "

In February 1991, the Institute for Comparative and International Legal Research, which is part of St. Mary's Center for International Legal Studies,

New Developments

Clinics & Classrooms
In 1990, St. Mary's University School of Law launched a clinical legal education program that is now providing a significant public service to the San Antonio community even while it gives St. Mary's students invaluable practical legal experience. The School's strong commitment to clinical legal education is evident in its expanding list of clinical offerings, which now include clinics providing services in Juvenile Justice, Poverty Law, Capital Punishment, and Immigration. The Immigration Clinic was initiated in the 1991-1992 academic year. Through the efforts of Associate Dean David Dittfurth and Associate Professor Jon c. Dubin, the School recently obtained a $95,410 grant from the United States Department of Education (DOE) to fund the expansion of its Poverty Law Clinic to provide representation to homeless clients from the Salvation Army Shelter and the San Antonio Metropolitan Ministries Shelter. St. Mary's also obtained a $71,663 IOLT A grant to continue the Clinic's other work.
Poverty Law Clinic Provides Legal Assistance to 300 Indigent Families

Poverty Law Clinic Director and Associate Professor Jon C. Dubin.

In just its first year of operation, the Poverty Law Clinic has provided representation to more than 300 indigent families and individuals, and has fully completed 225 civil cases.
The efforts of St. Mary's students have prevented the homelessness of several families faCing eviction; provided much-needed income support for food, clothing, and health care for the disabled and elderly; protected battered women from further violence by abusive spouses; and reunited parents with children wrongfully placed in foster homes on account of their parents' poverty. The Poverty Law Clinic has benefitted enormously from its partnership with Bexar County Legal Aid (BCLA) . The use of BCLA offices to house students and the in-kind assistance from BCLA staff have made the program more efficient, and students have had the opportunity to experience the day-to-day operations of poverty law offices and the environment of the impoverished communities they serve.

Poverty Law Clinic Supervising

Professor Dubin, a graduate of Dartmouth College and N ew York University School of Law, joined the faculty in the fall of 1990. During his first six months on the faculty, Professor Dubin established the clinical program in Poverty Law, produced an entire casebook on Poverty Law, and designed the Homelessness Project. One of the early priorities of the new Homelessness Project has been to enforce the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990, which gives homeless families priority in admission to government-subsidized housing. The Act was cosponsored by Representative Henry B. Gonzalez (D-TX) , an alumnus of St. Mary's Law School. St. Mary's students already are pressing for enforcement of the law on behalf of several homeless families with small children. The DOE grant for the Homelessness Project allowed the School to hire three talented and experienced individuals: Ana Maria Novoa, a graduate of the University of T exas at San Antonio and an honors graduate of the University of T exas School of Law, as Supervising Attorney; Mary Mendez as Paralegal; and Patricia Reyna as Secretary. They join Professor Dubin and Supervising Attorney Sue T. Bentch in forming the Poverty Law C linic team. Former Clinical Programs Director Mary Anne Crosby returned to St. Mary's as a part-time Adjunct Professor to help guide the Poverty Law C linic through its first year.
Students Defend Rights of 100 Juveniles

C linic Director Marsha Lynn Merrill and Ms. Jacquelyn Reibach of the San Antonio Community Law Center served as the supervising attorneys, with Professors Geary Reamey and Mary Anne Crosby generously stepping in fo r Professor Merrill while she was on maternity leave. Under the supervision of these facu lty members, students interviewed clients, investigated facts, analyzed and developed case strategies, negotiated with assistant district attorneys, and appeared in court on behalf of their clients. Last year, all but two cases were resolved short of trial. Students also took on the task of decorating the Clinic's new office in the Raba Building so as to create for their child -clients an atmosphere which would help foster trust and communication.
Students Petition U.S. Supreme Court in Death-Row Cases

The Capital Punishment Clinic was founded in the fall of 1990 and is cosponsored by St. Mary's University School of Law and the Texas Resource Center, which was estab lished in 1987 to provide representation for death-row inmates in post-conviction proceedings. Individuals charged with capital crimes often are illiterate and mentally retarded or disabled, and many of them enter the criminal justice system too poor to afford attorneys of their own choosing. The Cap ital Punishment C linic seeks to provide deathrow inmates with assistance in raising meritorious constitut ional claims. During the past academic year, St. Mary's students hand led 19 cases for clients at Ellis I in Huntsville, T exas, where the state's death-rQw popu lation is housed. Students helped obtain stays of execution

Last year, law students participating in the Juvenile Justice C linic defended the constitutional and other rights of approximately 100 juveniles. Many St. Mary's students also took the extra step of ass isting their clients in dealing with non-legal problems in school and at home.

for several inmates, including a stay in the execution of a mentally retarded, schizophrenic individual; worked on petitions for writs of certiorari; filed habeas corpus petitions with the United States Supreme Court; and undertook other legal efforts in behalf of their clients. The students were supervised by Clinic Director Jeffrey Pokorak, an attorney with the Texas Resource Center; Professor John Schmolesky; Adjunct Professor Mark Stevens; and Supervising Attorney Phyllis Crocker. This year, besides continuing as Director of the Capital Punishment Clinic, Mr. Pokorak is serving as an Adjunct Professor at St. Mary's and teaching Criminal Procedure.
New Faces at St. Mary's

Last year, in addition to hiring Professor Dubin and the attorneys and staff who joined the Law School's clinical education program, St. Mary's acquired the services of Associate Dean Josefina Jaramillo. Dean Jaramillo now has principal administrative responsibility for the School's recruitment and admissions program. Dean Jaramillo is a graduate of Stanford University and the University of Texas School of Law. Prior to coming to St. Mary's, she was an attorney in Los Angeles with the firms of O'Melveny and Myers and, later, Barbosa and Vera. Under her leadership, the Law School has recruited the best-qualified group of first-year students, in terms of their test scores and undergraduate grade-point averages, in the School's history. Associate Professor Jose Roberto Juarez, Jr., also a graduate of Stanford University and the University of Texas School of Law, joined the faculty in the fall of 1990. Professor Juarez was an attorney with the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund before joining the faculty at St. Mary's. Professor Juarez earned rave reviews from his students in Civil Procedure, Federal Courts, and Civil Rights. Two new faculty members who joined St. Mary's in the fall of 1991 bolstered the Law School's curriculum in environmental and labor law. They are Associate Professor Diana Borden, a graduate of

In addition, Gabrielle Kirk McDonald, formerly a United States District Judge for the Southern District of Texas, joined the faculty as a Visiting Professor for the 1991-1992 academic year. Professor McDonald, a graduate of Howard University School of Law, is teaching Civil Procedure and a seminar on Race, Racism and the Law.
New Courses Added To Curriculum And Grading System Changed

Tradition of Scholarship Advanced By Faculty Publishing

St. Mary's law professors, continuing the School's tradition of scholarship, published numerous books and articles on subjects ranging from trial and appellate criminal procedure to probate and the administration of estates. Among the faculty whose writings were published recently are Professors Michael S. Ariens, Robert R. Barton, Gerry W. Beyer, Mark W. Cochran, Vincent R. Johnson, Aloysius A. Leopold, Marsha L. Merrill, Allan E. Parker, Gerald S. Reamey, David A. Schlueter, Linda L. Schlueter, and John M. Schmolesky.

During the 1990-1991 academic year, several new courses and seminars were added to the curriculum, expanding the depth and breadth of the Law School's educational offerings. The new courses included Law and Economics, The Common Market, Poverty Law, and Advanced Federal litigation. New seminars included Public Interest Law, Legal Implications of Global Warming, Aviation Law, and International Trade. The School also changed its grading system last year, from a 37-level number-grading system to a 10-levelletter-grading system. The new grading system is being applied to the class entering in the fall of 1991 and to all classes entering thereafter.

Student Activities

Students at St. Mary's Law School participate, individually and through organizations, in the governance of the School. Two students serve as voting members of each standing faculty committee, and the President of the Student Bar Association attends each faculty meeting and meets frequently with the Dean to discuss issues which concern the student lxx:\y. During the 1990-1991 academic year, students participated in a number of social and governancerelated activities organized by student associations. Following are highlights of those activities.
Student Bar Association Launches Award-Winning Newsletter

The Student Bar Association (SBA) is the oldest student organization at the Law School and is a member of the Law Student Division of the American Bar Association. It serves as the students' liaison to the administration, the faculty, and outside organizations. In addition to sponsoring numerous social events last year, the SBA helped change the hours of the Law Library to accommodate student needs, created better grievance procedures, and established special committees to study problems associated with law placement and scheduling. The SBA also launched a student newsletter, called "The Forum," which won several national awards its first year and is expected to be financially self-sufficient in 1991-1992. The officers of the Student Bar Association during the last academic year included Eric Ransleben, President; John Blagg, Vice-President; Steve Ramos, Secretary; and Denise Hale, Treasurer. During the summer of 1991, current SBA President Charlie Philips successfully sponsored a resolution at the national convention of the Law Student Division of the American Bar Association to prohibit students from grading the work of other students.
Minority Law Student Association Creates New Tutorial Program

law students at St. Mary's. Membership is open to all students, faculty, and staff at the School, regardless of their ethnic or racial background. During the past academic year, members of the Association participated in a number of activities, including a "fajita cook-off" and volleyball tournament. Working in conjunction with the Law Alumni Association, the MLSA matched 20 minority law students with local attorneys in a successful "mentor" program. In the fall of 1991, the Minority Law Student Association launched a new tutorial program designed to help first-year minority students. Tutor positions are being filled by second- and third-year MLSA members. The officers of the Minority Law Students Association last year included Sarah Hinojosa, President; David Martinez, Vice-President; Carlos Uresti, Secretary; Rey Merino, Treasurer; Anthony Matulewicz, Historian; and Mehron Azarmehr, Parliamentarian.
St. Mary's Law Journal Devotes Issue to "Legal Aspects of DOing Business with Mexico"

covered such diverse subjects as copyright law relating to digital audio recordings, new legislation on child support for disabled adult children, organ transplants, and the pitfalls of public policy relating to arbitration agreements. An entire issue of the Law Journal was devoted to "Legal Aspects of Doing Business with Mexico," the subject of a symposium held in the spring of 1991. The articles dealt with diverse legal issues related to the maquiladoras, the use of arbitration to settle disputes, and the complexity of due diligence and ethics when dealing with two business cultures. Chief Justice Thomas R. Phillips of the Texas Supreme Court was the speaker at the annual Law Journal banquet in March. Chief Justice Phillips noted the great value of law journals as research sources for courts and attorneys.
Board of Advocates Hosts Regional Moot Court Competitions

During the 1990-1991 academic year, the Law Journal published one address, 22 lead articles, a book review, five comments, four casenotes, and four discussions of recent developments in the law. Editor-in-Chief Howard L. Speight, Research/Articles Editor Stuart W. Bowen, and Note and Comment Editor Jeffrey A. Lacy are now serving as clerks with the Texas Supreme Court. The address published by the Law Journal was delivered to the faculty and student body last fall by former Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox. It focused on recent developments concerning civil rights. The articles printed in the Journal

The Board of Advocates (BOA) is a IS-member student board responsible for administering and directing the various advocacy and trial programs at the Law School. Under faculty supervision, the BOA administers eight competitions each year, with winners representing St. Mary's in state, regional, national, and international competitions. During the 1990-1991 academic year, more than 500 students participated in advocacy competitions, and more than 100 attorneys and jurists served as judges. Most of the competitions last year were sponsored by San Antonio law firms, including Groce, Locke & Hebdon (Walker Moot Court); Plunkett, Gibson & Allen, Inc. (Shannon Thurmond Giltner Novice Mock Trial); Tinsman & Houser (State

Mock Trial); Ben Davis (ATLA Mock Trial); Steve Long (Client Counseling); and Speiser, Krause, Madole & Mendelsohn, Mata (Norvell Moot Court). Last year, the BOA hosted the Texas Pre-Law Association's Moot Court Competition, designed to give undergraduates the opportunity to participate in Moot Court activities. It also hosted the regional competition for the Philip C. Jessup International Moot Court Competition, managing the competition for all other law schools in the states of Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. And it has been selected as a regional host for the National Mock Trial Competition in the spring of 1992. At its annual banquet, the BOA gave five awards for excellence to deserving St. Mary's students. The awards and their recipients were the following:

Ernest A. Raba Writing Award Thomas Meaney Gertru£1e Jorrie Moot Court Award
David Crago

Judge Jack Miller Mock Trial Award
John Ferguson

Patricia Scott Award

Society of Legal Entrepreneurs Develops "Business Plan Package"

The Society of Legal Entrepreneurs (SOLE) was organized during the 1990-1991 academic year to provide students with information about the practice-management aspects of being a lawyer. Last year, the society put together and made available a "Business Plan Package" to help the fledgling law graduate. The package includes information on such topics as how to build a clientele, where to get malpractice insurance, and how to organize an office.

Education Law Association Hosts First Annual Issues in Education Symposium

The Education Law Association was formally established in December 1990 to provide students with opportunities to interact with recognized leaders in education and experienced practitioners in school law. The Association sponsored a guest lecture series that featured diverse presentations, including speeches by Jon C hubb of the Brookings Institute on "Educational C hoice," and C iro Rodriguez and other state politicians on "Educational Reform after Edgewood 11." A one-day Symposium on Issues in Education was the highlight of the Association 's activities during the 1990-1991 academic year. The symposium drew approximately 75 school attorneys, school administrators, school board members, teachers, and law students to the St. Mary's campus. The evaluations were so positive that a second annual Issues in Education Symposium, cosponsored by the Region 20 Educational Service C enter, will be conducted in N ovember 1991. In addition , the successful format employed at the symposium, which featured a number of student presenters, will be emulated by the University of North T exas Educational Doctorate program this year.

Just The Facts
St. Mary's University School of Law enjoyed some significant successes in recruitment and academic achievement last year. • The School's applicant pool increased by 20 percent, and its minority enrollment rose substantially. All associated with the School are proud that minority enrollment in the first-year class has increased from 7.5 percent in 1988 to 18.5 percent in 1991. • The credentials of St. Mary's first-year class, as measured by median Law School Admission Test (LSAT) scores and grade-point averages (GPA), have improved significantly. The median LSAT score increased from 31 in 1988 to 36 in 1991, and the median GPA increased from 2.95 in 1988 to 3.0 in 1991. The academic attrition rate declined from 6.2 percent in 1988 to 1.6 percent in 1990. • St. Mary's University School of Law, with a success rate of 93.04 percent, ranked third among eight Texas law schools in the passage rates of graduates who took the Texas Bar Examination for the first time in July 1991. • Students in the first-year class hailed from 82 different colleges and universities, including Harvard, West Point, Notre Dame, Purdue, Michigan State, Boston College, the University of Wisconsin, Marquette, the University of Iowa, Emory, Vanderbilt, and Tulane, in addition to the University of Texas, Texas A&M, Trinity University, and other Texas schools. • Although many of the students entered St. Mary's directly after college, the student body includes medical doctors, scientists, securities traders, teachers, retired military men and women, musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, and other individuals who are beginning second careers. Recruitment efforts were undertaken at St. Mary's by students, faculty and staff, with campus tours organized by Cynthia Maragoudakis, a student member of the Admissions Committee. In addition, members of the faculty joined the Admissions staff in recruitment trips to Law School Admissions Council-sponsored forums in Boston, Chicago, and Los Angeles, and in recruitment trips throughout Texas and at selected out-of-state schools, including Notre Dame, Stanford, the University

St. Mary's Offers New Opportunities For Career Planning

clerking for the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and five are clerking for the Texas Supreme Court. Other courts on which 1991 graduates hold clerking positions include the Texas Court of Appeals (13 graduates clerking in seven districts), the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals (three graduates), the Missouri Court of Appeals (one graduate), United States District Courts (three graduates), United States Bankruptcy Courts (two graduates), and United States Magistrates (two graduates). In addition, six second- and third-year students participated in the Texas Supreme Court Internship Program during the 1990-1 991 academic year.

In response to student concerns about employment opportunities, the Law School has strengthened its student services in career planning. St. Mary's now offers a variety of interview opportunities for employers and students. In add ition to arranging regular on-campus interviews, St. Mary's will be holding a job fair at the School next spring, and is planning a satellite job fair for South Texas firms. The latter will give South Texas lawyers the opportunity to interview St. Mary's law students without traveling to San Antonio. Job fairs are open to all employers, but are particularly targeted to small firms, government agencies, public-interest groups, and corporations. Last year St. Mary's created a special career placement handbook, which was distributed to all second- and third-year students. It contains a directory of legal employers, with interview calendars, employment criteria, National Association of Law Placement profiles, interviewing-firm resumes, and directions for using the Westlaw database for computer-assisted job searches. It also contains articles on interviewing, and on resume- and letter-writing skills. In addition, the Law School has created the new position of Associate Dean of Alumni Relations and Career Planning. The administration of the Law School, quite understandably, places great importance on helping the School's graduates enter into the practice of law.

To Our Supporters

Thanks to the generosity of alumni, foundations, law firms, businesses, and other friends, St. Mary's Law School received more than $200,000 in gifts during the 1990-1991 academic year. Most of the gifts were designated for scholarships to help students in financial need or to recognize outstanding academic achievement. New scholarship funds were established last year in honor of a former student and a former professor of St. Mary's Law School: The Shannon Thurmond Giltner Memorial Scholarship was established by Mark Giltner following the untimely death last year of his wife, Shannon Thurmond Giltner, who was a third-year student at St. Mary's. Gifts continue to flow into this scholarship fund, which will be used to help worthy and needy second- and third-year law students. In May 1991, former St. Mary's Law Professor Robert Hobbs established a scholarship in his name with a gift of $50,000. Professor Hobbs taught at St. Mary's for nearly 10 years, and contributions by former students and others friends who admired and respected him are being made in his honor. Recipients of the Robert Hobbs Scholarship will be selected on the basis of financial need, academic achievement, or both, and without regard to race, creed, color, sex, or ethnic origin. Among the larger gifts received last year was a $10,500 grant from the Sage Foundation of Detroit, Michigan. As requested by the donor, Melissa Sage Booth, who made the gift following a visit to St. Mary's University, the funds are to be used for scholarship awards to two law students. St. Mary's Law Alumni Association also made a generous gift of $10,000 to the Law School's General Scholarship Fund. And the Texas Equal Access to Justice Foundation provided a grant of $12,000 to St. Mary's Poverty Law Clinic. The generosity of these and many other donors helped to provide students with needed financial assistance and to advance the quality and educational services of St. Mary's University School of Law. During the last academic year, the Financial Aid Committee selected 30 second- and third-year students, primarily on the basis of need, to receive $107,700 in scholarship funds.
